The International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague on Thursday passes judgement to Congolese warlord Bosco Ntaganda, also known as “the Terminator,” to 30 years in prison.
“The time Mr Ntaganda has spent in detention at the ICC – from 22 March 2013 to 7 November 2019 – will be deducted from this sentence,” the ICC said in a statement.
On July 8, the ICC convicted Ntaganda on 18 counts of various crimes against humanity and war crimes in 2002-2003 in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
This verdict is currently subject to appeals.
In 2013 Ntanganda handed himself in to the U.S. Embassy in Kigali, Rwanda and requested transfer to the ICC in The Hague.
